. the latest ultimatum coming to according to ukraine's defense ministry from russia's black sea fleet, saying if ukrainian bases don't evacuate by 5:00 p.m. local time, they will storm them, russian troops will storm them. given that most people acree at this point, russia has complete operational control over crimea, it is not clear what this latest escalation will accomplish. but it is also not clear from what we've been seeing what the endgame here is for russia. it is bizarre that it is almost old news that russian troops fanned out across crimea and surrounding ukrainian military bases. we're hearing disturbingly about other bases in eastern ukraine where russian flags are hosted in eastern ukraine. pro-russians took over a floor of a main administrative building. >> those who are in crimea and if they present any legal and i would raise it again, any legal power in crimea, they try to squeeze ukrainian efforts, come to seize ukrainian property, tried to disarm the ukrainian army. >> reporter: there has been tough talk from western leaders like brit intaken's foreign -- britain's foreign

all because the department of defense refused to classify the assault as anything but workplace violence. now those soldiers being hit with more bad news. their live expenses are set to skyrocket. sergeant lunsford was shot seven times in that attack, not able to get the benefits he deserves and now this. how does this resonate with you? i'm talking about the proposed budget cuts and what it means to people like you? >> with the budget cuts that are coming down for our current service members, it is very detrimental to them. it's basically showing them they're not worth that much. in terms of war, this is like being a body being expendable, g.i. issue. it is sad because when we join the military they say we're family strong first as far as army component. with everyone else, it kind of makes you wonder is this a choice we really should make and that's a large because we do need to defend our standard of living in our country. >> quickly, 9/11 we had a different enemy than we had on september 10. the only thing we know is we're not ready to fight any battle let alone the one that

the biggest trial of the century. certainly so far it is. >> reporter: the defense claims it was a tragic mistake. pistorius thought steenkamp was an intruder in the home. he acted in self defense. prosecutors allege it was deliberate. he opened fire during an argument in early hours of valenti valentine's day last year. the prosecution will claim he was reckless and gun happy. new images show pistorius on a gun range,i shooting the pistol that killed steenkamp. there is evidence of a flirtatious and loving couple. >> we're looking at a double tragedy, really. because no matter what happens, his life will never be the same again. >> reporter: the trial is due to last three weeks, but a long list of witnesses mean it could last much longer. spending the last few hours inside that courtroom, i can tell you it is truly incredible in there. reeva steenkamp's family is sat shoulder to should we are oscar's family. george, none of them are even looking at each other. >> thank you, hamish. get back to the oscars now. josh what an interview with cate blanche blanchett. >> i got to sit down with c

for the verdict? >> every case is different but in this case, you had a lot of things going for the defense. one of the things about a famous defendant is it brings you the best of times and worst of times on the justice system. on the good side you can get the best lawyers and best experts and it doesn't hurt to be a kennedy. juries are going to give you not only a reasonable doubt but sometimes a benefit of a doubt that isn't so reasonable. >> and right, also i think everyone takes ambien and knows that's a relatable thing. i prefer ny gsquil. >> this took 20 months and required change of venue. do you think prosecutors made the right decision to pursue the case? >> i think the prosecutors are looking at this and saying look, we had no choice. she was arrested and impaired and in a condition where anybody else would have been arrested. we have to treat a famous person and the problem was it was a close case. when the defense worked it and prosecution expert witness saying yeah, you could take it and actually not know that you're impaired, when you get that kind of admission from the prosecutio

to be active participation on both sides of an issue, of a person charged with a crime. on defense or litigation over a law itself. so chairman goodlatte from here in virginia had -- just across the river in virginia had called a hearing in judiciary this week. we had another about the constitutionality or lack thereof of actions by this administration, and it's very alarming, professor johnson totally with whom i disagreed on any policy issues, has a wonderful grasp of the constitution, and he recognizes the dangers when administration decides to pick and choose which laws will be enforced and goes further and issues executive orders not like prior administrations that simply explain on most occasions or illuminate some law as to how they think it's to be interpreted, but to actually make law in executive orders. that's just unconscionable for somebody that took an oath to defend the constitution. . so i can't recall times aye agreed with the "l.a. times" before, but they had an editorial that indicates even the "l.a. times" understands the danger of what's going on right now in t

. >> reporter: in closing arguments thursday, kennedy's defense argued common sense and the lack of evidence will tell you there's no proof she was aware she ingested the zolpidem, a generic form of ambien. kennedy testified that on the morning of the accident, she mistakenly took a sleeping pill instead of her thyroid medication on her way to the gym. dr. david benjamin, a clinical pharmacologist testified for the defense. >> she drove for a long time without having any problem at all and then it hit her like a ton of bricks. >> reporter: in her closing, prosecutor doreen lloyd insisted that kennedy must have felt drowsy or dizzy before the accident. when someone falls asleep, they get tired, they get drowsy. they rest their eyes and fall asleep. lloyd closed by referencing kennedy's own book "speak truth to power" telling the jury, you will speak truth to power and convict kerry kennedy of the crime she committed. kennedy is also the ex-wife of new york governor andrew cuomo. now, to convict her, the jury has to find that, yes, she was driving, yes, she was driving under the influence of a
